Hope this will be helpful for any  Developers who are interested in RobotFramework, but don't have Python experiences.

Set up Robot framework Tool Chai

1. Install python
   download python 2.7.6

 add the python installation folder to the windows PATH environment variable, for example
2. Install pip
   download get-pip.py via https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py
   open a command window via "run as admin", type:
   python get-pip.py

   Add following into windows PATH environment variable:

3. Install robot framework
   pip install robotframework
4. Install selenium2library
   pip install robotframework-selenium2library

5. Install RIDE

  install wxPython  wxPython
  install through windows ride package win32 version
  Or install using pip
   pip install robotframework-ride
6. Install selenium webdriver client

   chrome driver: http://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/2.10/chromedriver_win32.zip

   IE driver
unzip them and copy the exe files in c:\webdriver directory
set them to windows path


7. Test
